Turkey's Justice Minister Abdulhamit Gül on Monday announced that all legal proceedings and trials in the country would continue as of June 16 after having been halted due to the novel coronavirus outbreak.

"REPUTATION OF JUDICIARY IMPROVED AS ADVOCACY STRENGTHENED"

"We've taken all the precautions in the courthouses," Gül said. "We'll increase dialogue and cooperation to strengthen the legal profession and advocacy," Gül added.

Stressing that the reputation of the judiciary improved as advocacy strengthened, Gül said: "We want a structure that strengthens advocacy in all areas of law."
